I have a special interest in the family system and how that affects each individual. This includes psychotherapeutic treatment of couples, parents and their children. My goal going into each session with my clients is to help them feel, think and act more positively and have an overall improved quality of life than when they originally came to see me. The therapeutic relationship is one of the most important things when engaging in the counseling process which means my primary focus is to aid my clients in handling stress and daily challenges. It can be difficult but with my support it is absolutely attainable.

Imagine a life in which your challenges - depression, anxiety, fear, loneliness - are no longer holding you back. Feeling worried, guilty, lost, or unsure of how to connect with others can feel uncomfortable and intimidating. When we worry, struggle to find meaning, or feel a lack of motivation and clarity, it can affect our mood, relationships, and overall experience. When your challenges are not holding you back, you can have deeper relationships, greater satisfaction with work & personal pursuits, and less worry about issues like finances, happiness, family , etc.

I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist with over 15 years of experience. I provide counseling to individuals, teens, couples and families. My training was specifically "systems" based so working within the dynamics of a couple or family is a process that I am very comfortable with. Typically I will incorporate Cognitive Behavioral techniques as well as Mindfulness-based techniques into therapy. I enjoy humor and, when appropriate, will use humor often in the counseling I provide. Most importantly, I strive to provide a safe, collaborative, objective and non-judgmental setting where all clients can process difficulties.

I am able to provide quality care for children of all ages, caregivers, and family systems.
I believe that part of the human condition is to sometimes feel stuck, and I take great pride in being able to help clients in becoming more self aware and prepared to take on the challenges the world offers. By creating a safe and supportive atmosphere, I aim to help individuals and families work through communication struggles and foster healthy sense of connection. I believe the best therapy works by exploring presenting problems and also helping people take concrete/measurable action to create positive change in their lives. Fundamentally, I hope to help people find their place in the world and function succesfully in it.

Whether individual, couple or family - I believe that therapy is a way to get to know yourself better; to see what is working (your strengths) and what is not – and to do this with a guide who can encourage you, challenge you and help you to overcome the roadblocks along the path to self-discovery and growth.
I have spent 30 years helping individuals, couples and families address issues of substance abuse, co-dependency, adult children of substance abuse as well as the many life issues that contributed to these problems. As an expert in these areas, I love nothing more than helping others with these challenges. There is so much more to addiction and recovery than just not using. And even if a person has never used, just being in a dysfunctional family can lead to a lifetime of problems. I recognize the courage needed to reach out for help – and I know that it is worth the risk.

Family Therapy

What do family therapists do?

A family therapist facilitates the process of understanding and improving how a family functions. The therapist will help family members develop empathy for one another. They’ll seek to understand existing patterns, misunderstandings, and conflicts that arise, in order to help the family arrive at a realistic, unified understanding and develop the coping skills they need to build stronger relationships.

How long does therapy for families take to work?

Therapy manifests differently in every family; a common time frame is 12 weekly sessions, but some families may see improvement after just a few weeks. Families should discuss their goals with the therapist at the beginning of the process and periodically revisit those goals to assess their progress together.

How can you encourage a family member to attend family therapy?

You can encourage family members to attend therapy by expressing with both love and concern the challenges you see and explaining how a therapist could help the family navigate those challenges together. An outside perspective can help everyone feel heard, get on the same page, and develop new skills. If family members are still hesitant, it may be helpful to emphasize that family therapy is short-term—it won’t last forever.

Is therapy for families effective?

Family therapy can significantly improve family dynamics and relationships. Research suggests that family therapy can help individuals understand their role in the family, communicate and solve problems together, reduce conflict and draw boundaries when necessary, and develop coping skills for stressors, major life changes, and mental or physical illnesses within the family.
